How can customers and shareholders influence gender equality?
Cody Taylor, Vice President Government Relations at Garrett – Advancing Motion; Marion Leslie, Head of Financial Information at SIX, and Member of its Executive Board; Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer and Member of the Executive Committee at LafargeHolcim; and Caroline Knoeri, Head Corporate Human Resources at private bank Vontobel join Professor of Finance at IMD Arturo Bris to discuss the current state of affairs regarding gender equality in the workplace. They debate the value of businesses setting targets versus quotas, data capturing, incentives, getting the CEO on board and the problem with making it all about ‘women’. This webinar was in celebration of both the 50th anniversary of Swiss women being granted the right to vote and of the unveiling of the Gender Equality Rating, to be published in autumn 2021 and a product of the IMD World Competitiveness Center. It appeared live on 4 February 2021 at 9:30am CET.
